25 PROGRESSIVE CARD GAME

25 PROGRESSIVE CARD GAME

There were 11 tables at last Friday night’s 25 Progressive Card game. The winners were Paddy Dunphy and Mary Therese Delaney (11 games); Martin and Martin from Mountrath (10 games); Sean Shea and Packie Butler (9 games). This was the last game in the present season, the proceeds of which went for missionary purposes. The games will resume next Autumn.

HORSE AND PONY RIDE

133 horses and ponies took part in the sponsored horse ride on Easter Sunday in Ballyouskill. This year’s event raised €3,500 in aid of SOS Kilkenny. The organisers would like to thank all the farmers and landowners who very kindly gave permission to enter their lands and also those who assisted in any way on the day. The sponsored horse ride has been held annually for the past ten years and has raised in excess of €59,000 for many charities and deserving causes. We highly commend the organisers on their dedication and hard work for those in need and a special thank you to all who generously support this event from year to year.

HISTORICAL TALK

The recent historical talk held in the Irish Flying Fishing and Game Shooting Museum in Attanagh is now available on the internet. If you got into the Youtube site and put Attanagh into the search facility you can view both subjects.

BALLYOUSKILL CHURCH

The decorative plaster work in the ceiling over the sanctuary which collapsed a few months ago has now been replaced. A new top slab has been put on the alter replacing the damaged one.
